February blocks done.....

My apologies Chooky and Susan for my late post. Finished the last 2 blocks today. Have used a mixture of French General fabrics with a few odd pieces from my stash. I've really enjoyed fussy cutting the fabrics and stitching these although  in the future I will allow more time for that process. I have also chosen to use blanket stitch applique instead of needle turn.


 I've left the little circles out of the heart blocks for now as I may add  buttons to the centre but if not will add the circles later.
Congratulations on so many finishes and a big Thank you to Chooky and Susan for pushing us to finish.
See you next month
Noela

Well done Noela...looks like a few us were "under the threat of the whip"!!!

Buttons are a great idea for those stupid little - oh I mean cute little - circles.
